If you know anything about Mormon Cinema, you may have heard of the gold rush that reached a fevered pitch when everyone who had a video or film camera rushed off to film their own "God's Army" when Richard Dutcher's film grossed $2.6 million in theaters alone.
Seven "Mormon" films have been released in theaters since "God's Army", including: "The Other Side of Heaven", "The Singles Ward", "Out of Step", "Charly", "Handcart", and "The R.M.". And there's more on the way (see ldsfilm.com for more details).
With so much about Mormon Cinema in the public, we began to wonder, what if Richard Dutcher mysteriously disappeared four months after "God's Army" came to theaters? Who would take his place? Who would lead our people?
Thus is the premise of the new documentary-style comedy "The Work and The Story" After Richard's disappearance in July 2000, three amateur Mormon filmmakers individually set out to create their first feature-length films to take Dutcher's place as the next "Mormon Spielberg". But one of these filmmakers doesn't want Richard found. What does that cryptic statement mean? What lies in store for our three heroes?
